When 2019 started, I committed to reading at least 20 books before the end of the year.
Here’s a summary of my readings this year.
Got 11 physical books but could only read 6 of them.
Got 8 kindle books and read all of them.
And, borrowed 22 audiobooks from Tempe Public Library, and could listen to only 10 of them.
In total, I got access to 41 books this year, and could only complete 24 of them.
That is 58% of the total books I got access to.
More importantly, I have written my first book titled, “The Self Made Indian Dream”, which is currently being edited by the publisher and scheduled to be launched by January 2020.
